• Verona Elementary School

    Every child. One voice.
    PTA Welcomes You to VES...
          Welcome parents, families, and caregivers to Verona Elementary 
    School!  We, the Verona Elementary PTA, look forward to meeting each 
    of you as we support our school this upcoming school year.  We get 
    the opportunity to do things as a group that makes a difference to the 
    teachers, staff, and students of this school.  We would like to encourage 
    each family group to consider becoming a part of the PTA in some way. 
            Why should you get involved?  First of all, being a part of the PTA 
    connects you to your child’s school. It’s a great way to know what is 
    happening and changing in the school.  Plus, it shows your child that you 
    care about what happens within the school walls. Secondly, it provides you 
    the opportunity to make a difference in the students and teachers daily 
    lives by using your individual talents.  And lastly, it gives you the chance to 
    meet some really great people who want to make a difference for Verona 
            What do we do?  With parent volunteers and the profits from 
    fundraisers, the Shop, Save and Earn program, Restaurant Nights, and 
    various other sources, the PTA is able to provide many things including: 
    An artist in-residence for an additional full semester – since the county 
    only provides an art teacher for 1⁄2 of a school year, teacher stipends (for 
    classroom use), Movie Nights, the Winter Carnival, technology funding, 
    Muffins for Moms/Doughnuts for Dads, a Wearable Art program, Teacher 
    Appreciation breakfast, murals, playground equipment, and the Butterfly 
    Garden as well as other projects that vary as need arises. 
          What would you need to do?  We will be on hand to answer questions 
    as to where we need help. Rest assured we have many members 
    whose volunteer time varies greatly.  Some can only step in here or 
    there...some can only make it to meetings...some can make it to only one 
    meeting...some can be at everything! Each member is just as valuable to 
    us!  We need YOU! Feel free to contact me via email or phone to talk more 
    about the opportunities available through the PTA!
         This year, each classroom will have a volunteer (or more than one) that 
    will attend PTA meetings monthly and forward PTA information to other 
    parents in the classroom. This way, every parent will be up to date with 
    PTA activities and opportunities! The classroom rep will be requested to 
    attend PTA meetings once a month and distribute the minutes to parents 
    in their child’s classroom. The minutes will be sent to the classroom 
    representatives by the PTA.  There will be sign-ups coming home the first 
    week of school with your child. We would love to have you as part of our 
          Thanks for all you do!
